Buttoned Up Businessy but Semi-Casual.

I call this look a buttoned-up office look without being too buttoned-up, if you know what I mean. I could have easily paired these slacks and button-down shirt with a blazer but chose not to. ;-) I added a semi-casual, semi-dressy, open, 3/4 sleeve cardi instead. It is so soft and comfy and it is my favorite cardigan from White House Black Market.

On another note. Today was absolutely gorgeous. Even-though I left my house at 7.30 AM to go to work, I could tell from the sky and the sun greeting me, that it would be a lovely day weather-wise. It warmed up and the sky was clear, plus most people had the day off so all of these combined, put everyone in a better mood. Unfortunately I had a full 12-hour work day ahead of me (another hour to go by the way, I am just taking a break). Had I known the weather would have been this great, I would have worn brighter, more cheerful colors as well, like a cool blue, some pink or some red. But I stuck to gray and black instead (though I loved all of my jewelry). Today's outfit will follow in a future post, meanwhile I am leaving you with this pants' outfit.

Make sure to check out the 7 RANDOM FACTS ABOUT ME here. And not to dissappoint you girls but there were 2 not just 1 post for today. Knock on wood, I am on a roll here!! =D I think March may finally be the month where I post outfits daily, besides other blogs like Wishful Shopping or other random things. LOL

7 Random Facts (I hope you DO NOT Know) About Me.

I decided to do one of these "Random Blogs" about me, where I list 7 random facts about me (that I haven't said before, I guess). You might have read one or two of these before since I am pretty chatty but I will try to mention 7 new, unused, fun, interesting, never-heard before things about me. The order is of no importance.

1. I have one brother though most people that know me think I have a sister too. That's because my first cousin (my mom's sister's daughter) is like a little sister to me. She is 9 years younger than me but we have so much in common: fashion & shopping is just one of those many things.
2. I want to visit every single continent once before I die. I also want to see all 7 miracles of the world before I die.
3. Between the years 2001 & 2006 I have written well over 2000 poems, at least 20% of them in English and the rest in my native language - Albanian.
4. I rarely wear all black (head to toe black), even-though I don't dislike black. I just prefer cheerful, bright colors more.
5. I deal with books every day at my job. I am surrounded by them and I love that.
6. On March 30th, it will be 8 years since I have married my best friend, though our wedding date and year are different.
7. I love hair accessories, especially headbands and flower clips.

You are all WELCOME to list 7 random facts about yourselves in the comment section. I would love to get to know you girls more and I do appreciate it.


I am leaving you this Sunday morning (it is 11.00 AM currently in Tirana, Albania) while wishing you all A VERY LOVELY, BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY!! It is gorgeous, sunny & pretty warm out but unfortunately I get to spend all day at work (I am currently in my office as I blog).


This is how I feel right now about the lovely sun and warmth that are surrounding me. I want to spread lots of sunshine to you all, on this gorgeous Sunday!!
